Relight promotes sustainability and cost savings for builders

It’s no secret that commercial electricity prices have risen in recent years. Most US companies have seen their electricity prices rise by up to 11 percent in the past 12 to 18 months. Old, inefficient lighting can often be the largest consumer of electrical energy, accounting for around 40 percent of the total bill for commercial enterprises.

Finding ways to reduce energy costs without compromising lighting quality or increasing replacement costs is a coveted goal. A very workable solution to achieve this goal while providing a sustainable option is the Relight kits from Lithonia Lighting®.

Save energy and the environment

Converting these old, inefficient fluorescent tubes into new LED lighting with Relight kits is a very cost-effective way to improve the lighting quality, save energy and get a completely new “look” in the room. Relight kits reuse that old fluorescent lamp in the ceiling and convert it to LED lighting that Save up to 70% on energy costsalmost eliminate ongoing maintenance work and modernize the interior design.

There are also sustainable environmental benefits that go beyond energy savings. Relight kits require significantly less material than a full replacement, and reusing the old fluorescent housing prevents around 8.5 pounds of steel per light from ending up in the junkyard.

By switching from fluorescent tubes to LEDs, building owners and facility managers also avoid the possibility of mercury cleaning due to lamp breakage. LED Relight Kits are designed to reduce environmental impact and carbon footprint from cradle to grave.

Using Relight kits is the ideal solution for building owners who want to cut costs while maintaining quality, reducing installation work and reducing their carbon footprint in order to work towards an overall more sustainable building.
